this is me too. I bought my first wool EVER for this baby and I am so afraid I'm going to hate it. I hope that you can make some of your money back!

Sounds like the Etsy seller's sizing is off imo. Fwiw, we do onesies under wool 24/7 and have no issues, but my DS isn't a very heavy wetter. Are you opposed to tshirts instead of onesies?

Sizing is def. off on that etsy woolie. That should have fit.

I use onsies snapped OVER the longies all the time. They do not wick through the wool or cause problems. I don't think it looks too weird either.

I'm starting to get annoyed whenever someone tries to help with any of my laundry. Even when hubby does his own, that means he washed a tiny load and I'm stuck with a tiny load of my own.

Wool isn't for everyone - but if you DID want to give it another shot, I'd highly reccomend taking measurements rather than the age size, since all babies are shaped differently. If you want a woolie that you can toss in the wash, I've try BBH wool wraps. I washed mine on the cold gentle cycle as directed, and once it even got tossed in with my dipes and went through a HOT wash and HOT dry and was 100% fine. Really hardy covers

I always just left the onesies unsnapped when my DD wore wool. Didn't bother me or her. I would fold it under so it looked like a shirt. Some people actually cut off the snap part so it looks like a shirt. I'm a huge wool lover. It's not for everyone. But I enjoy everything about it down to washing and lanolizing it.

Aw, sounds like a streak of bad-wooly-luck! Maybe try interlock... I interlock much more than knit for its practicality. Fleece covers are ok, but they get soooo stinky!! If I were going to use fleece, I would need a lot of covers to rotate. Interlock can usually survive a washer oopsie once or twice, and some is even made to be machine washable. We wear onesies over woolies almost daily, and even on my heavy wetting toddler overnight. If you have wicking, it is because the fitted underneath isn't absorbent enough, or you need to change the diaper, or the cover isn't lanolized or high enough wool content. Buy a Loveybums or WCW soaker, and I guarantee you will like it There are some NB/S soakers on in the seconds clearance and there is an additional 15% off with the code Mommytimes

If you're interested in fleece, try dicarpo designs. She's doing a co-op in May, I think! Sorry for the long link, I'm tech challenged!
